Premier Inn Leicester Central (A50) Hotel

Reviewed 6 January 2014

We have stayed with Premier Inn before and the staff, facilities and room were up to the usual reliable, pretty good standard. However, a word of caution; the beds were very firm, almost hard by most standards and, apparently, new mattresses have been bought recently. Also, at busy periods such as Christmas the car park gets filled up, apparently due to it being for shared use with other places, and it can be a bit of a nuisance finding a suitable parking spot. On a brighter note the staff had made the effort to ensure we were in a quieter area and there was no problem with noise. Worth asking for this.

We stayed here from 18th dec- 19th dec 2013 9 days. Very nice twin room at the rear of the hotel on the ground floor which was very quiet very clean, the staff were great the room was cleaned every day apart from Christmas day but we where ask if we wanted it cleaned (because they only had a small staff that day) but we said no if we needed anything we just asked the staff on the reception desk and they got it for us the restaurant was good and a good choice of food we eat there 6 days out of 9 the reason we did not eat the other days was because it was xmas eve,xmas day & boxing day. Would we stay again yes we would.

Neat tidy room, good pillows and powerful shower. The staff were brilliant. The only downside was the food, not much selection available from inhouse restaurant; neither did I find any close by restaurants.

The cheaper of two Premier Inns on the A50. Easy access to M1 and city centre but no other eating/entertainment options within walking distance and no local shops (e.g. newsagent/food). Good sized rooms, all with bath. Some road noise if window open. Restaurant fare adequate.

Typical Premier inn high standards at a budget price
Stopped for 1 night to watch the rugby at Leicester tigers
Nice big car park, friendly staff and clean well equipped rooms
Was able to leave the car parked there with a guest pass before booking in to get to the early kick off
Had a few beers in the bar across the car park, reasonably priced and well kept
Food looked very nice and lots of choice, but didn't eat there as we had a meal in Leicester before we came back

We try to get this Premier Inn rather than any of the other 299 that Whitbread have in Leicester because we like it!

Stayed on Friday were very late (11.45pm) in arriving. Surprised to get a mobile phone call from the hotel whilst we were travelling down the M1 asking if we were on the way... perhaps they could have flogged the room again if I said that we were not!

Good reception by Matt.

Room was clean and tidy but very warm. Stayed warm all night to the point where we opened the window to get some air in (very cold outside!)

Slept OK (because the heat- we like a cooler room) and had the usual cold buffet breakfast. This was a little more noisy than usual due a large party of young lads having breakfast at the same time but hey- they were excited!

Only complaint is the horrendous radio station that they play in the restaurant. We don't travel down from the North-East to but cars or take out instant loans in Leicester or listen to rave music at 9.30am. It wasn't even pop music- it was loud, nasty and off-putting. Staff confirmed that may customers comment but that they were contractually obliged to play it!

As always in Premier Inns the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were booked in for four nights and changed room after the second night as every time toilets were flushed we seemed to hear the result passing our room which was number 3. When we asked to change rooms it was dealt with really quickly, so thanks to the lady on the front desk for sorting that.

The prices at the Fayre & Square pub in front where you have breakfast were very good value for money, hard to argue with at all. One suggestion, they owners need to change whatever they use to clean the tables as they all seemed to get very sticky.

So, in summary you get what you pay for and in terms of value for money this is pretty good.

Room Tip: Avoid room number 3 if you can.
